    Freehold by Michael Z. Williamson

      Freehold is an interesting read … BUT … you have to wade through the boring parts in the beginning quarter to half of the book before it really starts to grip you and the last quarter – well that part won’t let you go! Freehold centers around a woman named Kendra. At the beginning […]

    Intergalactic Wizard Scout by Rodney Hartman

      Over the years I’ve read a couple of books and series that have started out well, but over the course of multiple books, gotten quite a bit “less good” and somewhat tedious.  Unfortunately, Intergalactic Wizard Scout is one of these in my opinion. While the writing itself is nothing to write home about, the […]

    Fan fiction: DooM – The Fires of Phobos, Chapter 4

    Glowing jewels ran down the corridor, the plasma strikes the distant approaching invaders. “Fire in the hole” shouts a marine. The screeching grenade arched through the air and decimates a horde of aliens approaching from behind. Major Sargent Martinez was providing intel to Admiral Frost over a ultra frequency transmitter. “Mobility has been impaired. Our […]

    While this series of books is numbered differently based on where you look, I think if you were to read it in the correct sequence you should follow the path below. THE SLAVER WARS: ALIEN CONTACT BY RAYMOND L. WEIL  MOON WRECK: THE SLAVER WARS (BOOK 2) MOON WRECK: FLEET ACADEMY (THE SLAVER WARS 3) […]

    Chapter 3 Martinez and his squad marched through the corridor after passing the air-lock, arriving at the entrance to Alpha Labs. The corridor was undergoing maintenance, it had bare panelling and conduits left hanging open, a step ladder and a pair of toolboxes lay upon the floor. Sergeant Martinez taps a universal control panel on […]

    Chapter II The data storage vault was a spacious chamber that was divided by two levels. The upper level held tall mainframes for storing data, the lower level had two rows of long computer stations, flanking a spacious work table with six thrones set around it, several data sheets, a few styluses, and some coffee […]

    Flagship – A Captain’s Crucible

    Loved it! OK that’s it – you can stop right here if you want the pure unvarnished truth about my feelings on this book.  However if you want to know why … well, continue reading! 🙂 I think you all know by now that I’m a bit of a geek and a SciFi nerd.  I’m […]

    Fanfiction – DooM: The Fires of Phobos, Chapter 1

    Chapter I After launching away from the Deimos moon base, the small escape pod sailed along the orbit of the red planet, a small metallic sliver in the dark vastness of space. On board, some of UAC’s top-level researchers watch as Deimos disappears before their eyes. Empty space crawled along the craterous surface, enveloping meter […]

    Moon Wreck: Fleet Academy (The Slaver Wars 3)

    Probably the book I enjoyed the least in the series as while it continued the Slaver Wars story very closely & kept our favorite characters close, it had too many elements that just simply didn’t make sense and were completely illogical.  As I’ve just mentioned this one has the same core key characters however the […]

    Moon Wreck: The Slaver Wars (Book 2)

    Continuing on from the quite interesting Slaver Wars: Alien Contact, Moon Wreck takes us in a completely different direction than the one I was expecting.  This time, we’re not exposed immediately to a resurgence in the war against the Hocklyn Slave Empire – instead we’re exposed to an Earth not too far in the future […]

    Chapter XIII – Devil in the Dark From there they only met some light resistance, soon they made it to the structure. It was a writhing blob of orange and red flesh, the discoloration of veins protruded lightly from below its surface. Surrounding it was a moat of bubbling blood (or what looked like it), […]

    The Slaver Wars: Alien Contact by Raymond L. Weil

    What do you get when you combine BSG with Stargate?  Perhaps somewhat surprisingly from the title and from other books this author has written, you get exactly this exact combination from The Slaver Wars: First Contact.  Now it definitely doesn’t start down that path … in fact the early chapters of the book are more of […]

    Chapter XII – Hell’s Keep The marine fell through the portal, spinning head over foot through thin strands of throbbing energy. He fell through an alien sky toward an unknown world, a large circle was below. An invisible force oriented him and guided him gently to the ground in the centre of the circle, Hell […]

    Fanfiction: DooM – Ultimate Experiment, Chapter 11

    Chapter XI – The Ultimate Experiment On the scorched Earth below, the marine makes his way through armies of aliens, slowly making his way to their stronghold. Along his way were mountains of stinking, maggot infested corpses of humans, aliens and animals. The closer he got, the more of the grotesque growths he encountered. He […]
